Special Summer Mathematics Program

The Mathematics Summer Program is open to continuing and incoming transfer students whose mathematics placement is below college level or slightly deficient. It provides an opportunity for students to take courses which, if successfully completed in the summer, will advance their mathematics standing. In many cases, to a college level math course.

Students who need to take these courses should report to the mathematics department on Tuesday, June 6, 2006, from 2 - 4:30 PM to register for the course. This is a free program, students who enroll in this program may not take any courses in the second summer session program.

The program begins July 10 and concludes on August 17, and is offered in both the day and evening. The day program includes regular classroom instruction, tutoring and computer assisted instruction. The evening component has longer classroom instruction as it does contain tutoring or computer assisted instruction. Most of the courses run over six weeks, a special combination day session course runs an additional week. Students enrolled in this program may NOT be registered in the second summer session.

FSPM 0121: This course is identical in content to CSTM 0120 and covers topics in intermediate algebra. Students placed into this course have demonstrated a knowledge of elementary algebra. Students completing this course may register for MTH 1030 - College Algebra, in the fall.

FSPM 1031: This is a college algebra course, identical in content with MTH 1030. Students completing this course may register for MTH 2003 - Precalculus with Elements of Calculus, in the fall.

The combination course, FSPM 0102: This course first reviews topics from elementary algebra and then covers the content of 0121 (described above). Students completing this course may register for MTH 1030 - College Algebra, in the fall. This course is only offered during the day.

Students who successfully complete either FSPM 0102 or FSPM 0121 receive exemption from CSTM 0120 and may register for MTH 1030 in the fall.

Students who failed MTH 1030 and pass FSPM 1031 with a C or better will have their grade replaced with a P and the college’s “F” policy will be applied. There will be no credit for the previously taken course and a comment will be placed on each student's record to explain the application of the “F” policy without the repetition of the same course.
